Review

"One of my favorite reads from last year, Lilith was originally an Amazon serial, but is now available in both ebook and hard copy forms.  I picked up the free first issue, and loved it so much I went out an immediately bought the serial.  I loved each installment, and I recommend it to people who are looking for something new/a new author to read." - A Random Flood of Words...

I had read and liked the first episode of another Plympton-publisher Kindle Serial, Hacker Mom. After I posted a review of it, I got an email from Plympton co-founder Jennifer 8. Lee, thanking me and suggesting I check out another of their titles. As a 50s male, a paranormal story about a teenage girl is not my usual "cup of tea", though I wonder if that's true since I adored James Schmitz' stories about psi-wielding Telzey Amberdon, but since Jennifer asked so nicely I figured I'd give it a "fair go".

The first thing I was struck by was how authentic the "voice" of Lilith felt. It really read as I imagined a 17-year-old girl might write, rather than what an adult pretending to be a 17-year-old might. The story so far introduces the situation well and has its own share of intrigue and adventure, but I am looking forward to seeing what's next.

I am happy to see Plympton (and Amazon) resurrecting the notion of the serial for e-books. I regularly read serials in science fiction magazines, but the form has generally disappeared from mainstream publishing. I liked the concept so much that I became a backer of Plympton's project on Kickstarter and will definitely check out more in this series.

I've now read Episode 2 and realized that this is not a "paranormal" story but rather straight-on science fiction. Dr. Hammer, whom Lilith calls her "personal mad scientist", created a mechanism that allows jumping (literally) between two worlds. Are there more than two? At this point in the story, that is not known.

I downloaded the Kindle app on the iphone so I could do some reading on downtime at work without carrying around books. The app was free. This serial sounded interesting, and cost 2 bucks. I spend more than that on a cup of coffee every day, so this was a gamble on which I was willing to place my bet.

Anderson must have been reading those comics in his time as a comic book store clerk. The pacing. The visual sense I get reading this story. That cliffhanger, leaving you hanging! Waiting for the next "issue'! That's a Brian-K.-Vaughan-level cliffhanger!

If you like to read, if you like stories about alternate realities, if you like characters who are genuinely enjoyable to read, gamble your 2 dollars. The only thing you'll be upset by is that you got done reading it so quickly and now have to wait for the next chapter.

So far so good...smooth and interesting reading...while waiting for the next installment may seem like torture, it's actually is kind of fun...I'm one of those people who usually whips through a really good book and then is upset when it's over...so maybe this will teach me some moderation!

Lilith Lane isn't your typical girl detective, she speaks and thinks in an honest and angsty manner that prevents the story from being pigeonholed as your typical young adult fare; think Nancy Drew if she was a character on an episode of DEGRASSI written by Joss Whedon. There's a lot to like here for those entrenched in modern popular culture, everything from DOCTOR WHO to BEING JOHN MALKOVICH sprung to my mind, and the cliffhanger is a legitimate shocker. Can't wait for the next installment!

I almost never give 1 star, but I feel like this book really deserved it. The plot was absolutely intriguing, but the ending killed all of the good things that Anderson had written in the book. It tied up too neatly, and she broke the "rules" for the world she had in order to write a happy ending. Character reactions were a bit strange -- when Lilith finds out her dad cheated on her mom, got his mistress pregnant, then botched the abortion he gave her so that she could never have kids again, Lilith's response is to flippantly say, "Oh Dad, you're such a terrible doctor" and then laugh. I was unable to get into this book because I was constantly shaking my head at the horrible cliches.

I wanted to like this book. I read the description, and really liked the idea of the book, but ultimately, I found that I liked the idea much more than I liked the story itself.

The story opens well; Lilith is standing atop a building, and contemplating suicide. What got here here? Why does she feel that there are no other options? The author drew me in pretty quickly, making me feel the depression that Lilith must have felt to be standing there. I was hooked, or so I thought.

The real issue for me is that once hooked, it felt like the author had no idea how to reel me in. The sister is dead. The sister is alive. the sister is dead again. I felt like I was a fish swimming in circles, getting no closer to the boat, but not really able to get away, either. Also, while I identified with Lilith, I really couldn't find any other characters that I could see as real, that I could care about, hate, or feel anything else about except for apathy.

Ultimately, about half way through I got bored, and like so many movies or other books, I wanted to know what happens, but not really enough to slog through the morass in front of me to get there. I admit I read the ending, hoping to find something there compelling enough to make me want to go back and finish the rest of the book. Instead, I found an ending I found as unsatisfying as the rest of the story, and I finally threw in the towel.

On the positive side, the author can definitely write, but I am not sure if he can tell a story well enough to make me want to read it. However, for getting me interested enough to read half the book, and interested enough to want to know how it ended, I have to give it three stars. Unfortunately, three stars isn't enough to make me want to anything else the author may produce.
